Dimensional stability:

Is measured on a 6” x 6” (150 x 150 mm) aluminum panel to which a specimen has been applied; 72 hours after application the panel is scored in a cross pattern, exposed for 48 hours to 150°F (65°C), after which the shrinkage is measured.

Adhesion:

(FTM-1, FINAT) is measured by peeling a specimen at a 180° angle from a stainless steel panel, 24 hours after the specimen has been applied under standardized conditions. Initial adhesion is measured 15 minutes after application of the specimen.

Flammability:

A specimen applied to aluminum is subjected to the flame of a gas burner for 15 seconds. The film should stop burning within 15 seconds after removal from the flame.

Also tested to ASTM E-84 method for surface burning characteristics of building materials. Documentation from third party testing agency available upon request.

Temperature range:

A specimen applied to stainless steel is exposed at high and low temperatures and brought back to room temperature. 1 hour after exposure the specimen is examined for any deterioration. Note: Prolonged exposure to high and low temperatures in the presence of chemicals such as solvents, acids, dyes, etc. may eventually cause deterioration.

Chemical Resistance:

All chemical tests are conducted with test panels to which a specimen has been applied. 72 hours after application the panels are immersed in the test fluid for the given test period. 1 hour after removing the panel from the fluid, the specimen is examined for any deterioration.
